Our balloon flights are available from a number of sites across Oxfordshire and also Buckinghamshire. These include balloon rides from the City of Oxford, sites in and around Henley on Thames and balloon flights from Great Missenden. Our local balloon crews have a great knowledge so that whichever of these areas you choose to fly from you will have an enjoyable balloon ride.
For our hot air balloon rides from Oxford over the west of Oxfordshire we will launch from Cutteslowe Park, Harbord Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire OX2 8LH which is a large council run recreation area.
From the opposite end of Oxford we provide balloon rides from Henley and the surrounding area. Where possible we will launch from our site at Swiss Farm, Marlow Road, Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire RG9 2HY. On some occasions if the wind direction requires it and in order to keep out of Heathrow Airspace we may use other sites at nearby Reading or near Marlow and fly back towards the Henley area for landing.
Our hot air balloon rides over the Buckinghamshire area will usually start from the Black Horse Pub, Aylesbury Road, Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, HP16 9AX. However due to it’s closure during 2021, we will use our site at Hartwell, not far from Aylesbury and approximately ten miles north of Great Missenden.
Our balloon team will be able to answer any questions you might have on the day of your flight. To contact our main office before booking a voucher for a balloon ride please email us during normal weekday office hours or call us between 11am and 3pm.
